City staff has been made aware of a flooding issue at the intersection of Camelot Drive and Little Den Drive. The area’s existing storm sewer system is undersized, which has caused multiple homes to flood, according to Lewisville City Council’s Feb. 20 agenda item.
The council approved an $85,000 professional services agreement that will include a drainage analysis. Teague Nall & Perkins Inc. will examine the storm sewer system that drains to Timber Creek through the Valley Vista and Valley View subdivisions. The drainage analysis will assess conditions and provide alternatives to improve the storm sewer system to alleviate flooding, according to the agenda item. The professional services agreement also includes data collection, a field survey, a pipe condition investigation, existing condition analysis and technical reporting services.
Staff will then evaluate the drainage analysis and determine the work needed to improve the drainage system. An engineering consultant will design the necessary storm sewer improvements.
Funding is available through the city’s drainage improvements fund.
